The Virgo Art Coat is a custom coat made for an amazing artist. The outer part of the coat is made from vintage wool, black lace, heavy tapestry fabrics, linen and silk. The lining is made from hand dyed cottons. I cut out large circles and quilted them on the coat to create my own fabric. The contrast between the black and white with the splashes of color is simply incredible. They entire hem is hand embroidered and I sewed on hundreds of buttons along the collar and hem. This is an incredibly full and heavy coat. I am so excited with how this piece turned out. Truly a wearable piece of art.
I am going to post some of my experiments and thoughts. It can be anything from photography to art to mycology
